Inspiring, informing and supporting young people in Wales into careers in the creative industries

The Creative Careers Programme Cymru (CCP Cymru programme) is in its pilot year, and has already delivered training sessions to 225 careers advisers from across Wales, supporting their knowledge of the varied roles which make up the sector, and the transferability of skills and roles from one area to another.
